Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Lunch at my favourite place

My mum is such a sweetie, when I came home she noticed that I was feeling sad and low. She didn't ask about what or why but she suggested that we go out to lunch at my favourite vegetarian buffet: Hermans.



So that's what we did, and it did cheer me up a little. Got me thinking about other things and is definitely a huge positive! Like I've mentioned any times before, I could eat in cafes or restaurants everyday if I had the economy for it. Because eating out doesn't have to mean burgers and fries, there are so many other  things you can eat.  Buffets uses to once terrify me, but now I love them. I love being able to choose what and how much I want to eat and going back for more if I want. But also you can try so many different things when you eat at buffets and when it comes to vegetarian buffets the food is always so good. Lots of vegetables,  beans, vegetarian lasagna, roasted vegetables, hummus and delicious bread. 2 mixed plates of different things and after some digesting time I shared a chocolate cake with my mum which tasted amazing as well. By the end I was super full which happens often when I'm at buffets. .. like a kid in a candy shop! If you are ever in Sweden I recommend that you visit hermans cafe :) it's not so expensive either.










Then when we sat in the car and we're on our way home my mum suggested she buy me an adult colouring book. She knows that I find it meditative and used to colour alot during summer but then I no longer found any good pages to print out and haven't been able to buy myself a book so she bought me one and some colouring pens to go with it. So sweet of her, I almost feel guilty and wish I could feel the happiness on the inside,like real happiness and not just faking it...? Anyway, roughly 3 hours of sleep is beginning to show now and I most of all just want to sleep now!! So that is my plan and most probably a film before bed.





Do you have any weekend plans or any positives to share? :)

  5. colouring books are great! my favourite are the creative haven range - they sell them on Amazon. I`ve just brought the new "owls" one - its beautiful. I spend many an hour colouring, its so relaxing and productive too.
    hope you`re having a better day today - be kind to yourself
